The following is part of an email from a retired District Overseer in the States. (source private)
"The new Bible will be released at the AGM and I understand only two versions will be printed from now on. The Reference Bible and the Deluxe leather bound version. No more small Bibles and no paperback. They have worked hard on the binding and when you open it, it will lay flat. It will be in “modern” English as many young people do not understand many of the words used in the current edition." Spread the Word! They ain't gonna be cheap to "donate" for!
